Ayaka Signs to New Agency
May 2, 2008

From Hello! Online

Kimura Ayaka ( 木村 絢香 ), who left Up-Front Agency and Hello! Project earlier this week, has a profile page up at her new talent Agency, Tristone Entertainment. This agency is also home to other popular actors such as (Yaguchi Mari’s ex-boyfriend) Oguri Shun.

She also has taken a new name, Nagate Ayaka ( 長手 絢香 ). According to her new profile page, this is her new “stage name”. During her time in H!P, her stage name was simply “Ayaka”, and was always spelled out in katakana ( アヤカ ).

Her profile page also includes a resume of past projects she’s worked on. You can see the full profile here.

Yay! I’m looking forward to whatever she does~ ^^

Kimura Ayaka Has Graduated From Hello! Project
April 30, 2008

The last member of the Hello! Project group Coconuts Musume, Kimura Ayaka, has graduated from Hello! Project unexpectedly on April 30th, 2008 to become an actress.

No!! I love Ayaka. Although she did like nothing. They could have at least put her in a new subgroup or give her back her Surprise English Lessons show. ><

She was one of the older members of Hello! Project, joining way back in 1999. She was in H!P for about nine years, which is amazing because the only members I can think of right now that were in before her are Abe Natsumi, Iida Kaori, Nakazawa Yuuko, Yasuda Kei & Yaguchi Mari who were all from Morning Musume. Coconuts Musume was already done for…they haven’t released anything since August 2001 & her show ended in 2002 so she was just…there for the past 5 years. Wasted talent.

I hope she does good in acting & I really want to see whatever she’ll star in. Good luck Ayaka! :(
